Intercessor Precious Lord, We come to you in prayer among the many frightening changes in the world. We have lost our patterns of daily life. Each day comes with deeper concern for the victims of outrageous wars, and those survivors in need of food, medicine, safety and shelter.

We Pray for Peace! We pray to stop the killing. We pray to stop all of it.  

We pray for the victims of natural disasters, and refugees seeking safety.

Lord these are human thoughts. We turn to you for God’s thoughts. From earthly things to heavenly things, may all the ends of the earth turn to you for Peace.

Precious Lord, In this special time of Lent, we open our hearts to your spirit of transformation.

Bless your churches and priests throughout the world who serve in love through many faiths; give them strength through your truth and guidance with the Holy Spirit. Bless our Emmanuel Church, with many hands and hearts who serve, with the dinner kitchen, spring gardens, Labyrinth. and services for our island community. We pray for our beloved Fr. Berto and Fr. Hugh, as they lead and teach us with wisdom, knowledge and inspiration, especially in these renewing days of Lent.

Jesus Christ came down to be the true bread which gives life to the world. Make us alive together with Christ, as you have created us to be. 

Bless those who seek a renewal of purpose and passion for your love during this time of reflection and meditation. 

Precious Lord, open our hearts, to know we can never be separated from your steadfast love.

Dear Lord, we pray for our nation in this time of elections, for our leaders to be humbled by their responsibility to serve all people with respect and equality.  There is so much work to do, such great calling for compassion and inclusiveness in the face of division.

Precious Lord, may we all know the immeasurable power of your grace and love, through Jesus Christ.

We pray for the earth, the environment, and all creatures here below.

In you God, we put our faith, hope and trust that all nations will cease destruction of our fragile earth. You have created all things for a purpose.

Precious Lord, We pray for you to come upon the world for leadership, wisdom and urgent reform to live in harmony with a renewable natural world. 

We pray with compassion for those who suffer in the world, those in need of clean water, food, clothing, shelter and safety for their families.

Precious Lord, we are all your children. We pray for your care of those who suffer and struggle for survival. May they know the peace of your love and grace.

Bless the front line responders to tragedy, floods, earthquakes, and war.

Precious Lord, thank you for your angels at work in our world. Compassion brings the power of Love.

We pray for all who have passed from our sight into your heavenly kingdom, especially Mary Owens.  Bless those we hold in our hearts, and those who struggle with addiction, poverty, sickness and loss, especially those we name here on our Parish Prayer list:

Precious Lord, We are so grateful for your abundant blessings upon us.

We pray in the name of our Savior Jesus Christ, forever. Amen.

For all who are in need of our prayers, remember those on our parish prayer list:   … and for those for whom no one prays; may they be comforted by your Holy Spirit.

Precious Lord, you know our hearts and struggles. May each of us be strengthened by your love and healing. We shine through your grace.

Dear Lord, You are our refuge and our stronghold, in whom we put our trust. Open our hearts in our meditations this Lent, to the richness of our being, as you have given us the gift of life, and the joy of service. Lifting our voices with all creation, with Mary the God-bearer, and all the saints, let us offer ourselves and one another to the living God through Christ. 

To you, O Lord our God.
